This month the challenge for Gecko Galz is "Asian Beauties". Below are some samples using the lovely Asian images and some beautiful backgrounds. If you go through my blog you will notice that a number of my cards are sick cards or sympathy, because I make many to send to my church congregation.
Don't you just love the background on this card. It is one of many in a paper pack found on the Gecko Galz Etsy site.
Below is a tag with two additional Asian beauties from Gecko Galz.
This month the theme at Gecko Galz is Garden Blass Challenge. The tag includes pieces from an old book, green distressed ink, a recycled ribbon and two bird images from the many Gecko Galz images in their inventory.
One of the first things I think about when the word Paris is mentioned is the art. Below is my interpretation. The main image is from Gecko Galz with various embellishment obtained from old greeting cards and from my stash.
What is more appropriate for March as "Putting on the Green". This is my interpretation of the Gecko Galz theme for the month.
The background for this card is actually a sheet illustrating a Bingo card. The two beautiful waxy bees in the corner or actually envelope stickers. Someone gave me a bag of the stickers about two years ago and I have loved using them ever since. It is not possible to tell, but I used some clear Stickles on the rose to give the card a little bling.
The theme this month at Gecko Galz is "A Courtly Love Affair" I cut my image out and put it on a piece of scrap cardstock that was leftover after cutting a border. I added two strips of red stones for a little bling on the card. The sentiment which is a little hard to read is "Time for Comfort and Help"
Almost all of my cards go to those who have been in the hospital, homebound, and to those in my Sunday School class who are having a birthday. Therefor my sentiments are directed to those groups.
Another card using a lovely Gecko Galz image is below.
Gecko Galz is having a 24 Tags of Christmas challenge theme. This is my Winter Tag. I thought I would do something a little different. I used an image from Gecko Galz of a snowy mailbox and added parts of several Christmas picks as embellishments to give it a little sparkle and more of a Christmas feeling. Also some burlap from a pick, along with some red berries were attached and some Liquid Applicator was added making snow on them. At the bottom the words "Merry Christmas" were cut from the original image.
I hope you like my idea of combining the different elements.
Christmas Day will be here before we know it. I have used below some of my favorite Santa images from Gecko Galz. The first one is the typical Santa image, while the second is a traditional antique Santa image.
Below I added two rows of Diamond Dust to add a little glitz to the card.
I really like my color combination in the next card.
I hope you like what I created with these Gecko Galz imagas. Don't forget Wednesday is the $1.00 day!

Here are some projected I made using some of the above images.
This month the theme at Gecko Galz is "Autumn". I tried to make three different cards using my favorite images from Gecko Galz. I love the different backgrounds Gecko Galz has. This is only one of them and I have used it in two different cards.
I am really pleased with the chalk background I made on the card. It matches pretty well with the background of the image.
This is one of my favorite images of a bee. I used a woven mesh as a mat under it
